You’d better contact customer service on detail Ford model before hook it up.



Customer feedback:

1. Yes, it works. Uninstalled everything, install the drivers from allscanner, then installed FJDS 116 and updated.
Payed for the two days and it works.


2. just did one 2 days ago and another today, yes after you’re done with programming with FJDS and PATS keys, you have the perform the CEI lock configuration.


3. My programmer arrived last evening (VXDIAG VCX Nano for IDS Ford/Mazda).   It has the drivers that are needed to make it work and you can test that the device is working properly before getting the required FJDS license from Motorcraft. You’ll want to do this because the most cost effective license (at $50) is only good for two days. Make sure you also have the FJDS software from Ford up and running before you acquire a license key. When programming, you just enter the PCM part number and FJDS pretty much picks up everything else including getting the correct VIN transferred into the used manual PCM.





Q: Will it work with ford edge 2019? need to instal and program a new awd module?

A: If you are using FJDS it will work .


Q:If i use this with a fjds license, can i program ford modules on the ms can bus? like the driver and passenger door modules?

A: No.
